I found the kasoori methi was less, so added 1/2 teaspoon more.

Step 10. Add the paneer cubes. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes on a low flame. Now turn off the flame, let it sit covered for 10-15 minutes before serving so it absorbs all the flavours well. It will get thicker with time. Note - Do not cook gravy after adding paneer as it will get hard.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and fresh cream. Serve Khoya matar paneer hot with butter naan or rice.

Tips to make best Mutter paneer recipe with khoya

  • Silken tofu can be substituted if paneer is not available in your place.
  • You may substitute the Khoya/Mawa with cream if it's not available.
  • You may prepare gravy in advance and freeze it about 4 days. Whenever you want to have Khoya matar paneer. Heat a pan, add 1 tsp of oil, fry the gravy and add paneer cubes. Stir well and add water to adjust the consistency, that's it, your instant khoya matar paneer is ready in no time.
  • If you are making this in a pressure cooker - follow the instructions till adding spices. Once it's done, add paneer, peas and water and cook it till one whistle. Open when pressure ease off, and continue with Khoya addition and the remaining procedure.
  • I did not add sugar because khoya/mawa has its own sugar so no need to add extra.
  • You can make Matar Paneer same way, just omit khoya from this recipe.
